Deuteronomy 34:1,4 and a Woman sitting on a Mountain side, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
“Now Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo… Then the LORD said to him, ‘This is the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, “I will give it to your descendants”; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.’” Deuteronomy 34:1,4
The Final Promised Land
I don’t live in one of these majestic areas I photograph. My family and I live in a simple home in Bellevue, Nebraska. My wife (in the above photo) and I long for a mountain home someday, but that someday may never come.
We long for the mountains because the beauty of nature gives us a tiny vision of our heavenly promise land. All our deep held longings here on earth point us to a better home. Someday our longing for that glorious home will be met.
Just like Moses, my wife and I may never get to a special “promised land” here on earth, but just like Moses, someday we will get to our eternal promised land in heaven with Jesus. Read all Deuteronomy 34
